Simple Simon

Simple Simon

Looking at it 40 years after the first time I probably heard it, Mother Goose’s Simple Simon now seems really bizarre. I stumbled upon it during a Google-search-turned-complete-waste-of-time, and wondered if today’s more sensitized consumers of children’s literature bristle at the term “simple,” used to describe our mentally challenged protagonist. The excerpt above struck me as a tool to bring up another bristly topic: how to take a sample if you want to measure cyanobacterial toxins in a lake or reservoir impacted by a harmful algal bloom (HAB).
